-->'''Lightning:''' How could a car like you quit at the top of your game?!\\
'''Doc:''' (shocked) You think I ''quit''? (shows Lightning an old newspaper)\\
'''Lightning:''' Right... your big wreck in '54...\\
'''Doc:''' They quit on ''me''. When I finally got put together, I went back expecting a big welcome. Know what they said? "You're history." Moved on to the next rookie standing in line... There was a lot left in me. I just never got a chance to show 'em. I keep that to remind me never to go back.

* The scene where [=McQueen=] ''goes back'' and pushes the wrecked King over the finish line, giving up his victory, but giving The King some final dignity.

* How about the credits? And it's not just the use of that absolute TearJerker of a song - 'Find Yourself' by Brad Paisley. Those lyrics are bad enough, but at around the same time they begin (when the Hilarious outtakes have ended), the screen just ''has'' to display the words 'Dedicated to Joe Ranft 1960-2005'. For those who don't know, Ranft was an actor and close friend of the Pixar crew, who died in a car accident. Made more sad by them showing clips, next to the dedication, of the Pixar characters he played: Heimlich (from 'A Bug's Life'), Lenny (from 'Toy Story 1&2') and Wheezy (from 'Toy Story 2'). Made even worse for anyone who watched Toy Story 3 and was wondering where Lenny and Wheezy were ... and it might be bad for anyone who hoped for a sequel to WesternAnimation/ABugsLife, as well. So ... heartwarming song, dedication to lost friend, clips of characters we may never see again ...

** Doubles as heartwatming: when Sally invites Mcqueen for the ride, he considers running away for a few seconds before deciding to join Sally instead.

** Speaking of that, The King being so destroyed that it resembled not only Doc Hudson's crash but also happened in real life (See MoodWhiplash and any trope involving the King's voice actor)

* Indeed. Pixar + James Taylor = sobbing. And the aftermath of the press finding Lightning again didn't exactly help either. It may not have drawn tears, but still...watch. Think about it.
** That scene was like a more painful version of the "Our Town" song, because it essentially shows Radiator Springs coming back to life, and then dying again when Doc Hudson finally gets rid of the press and [=McQueen=]. The neon lights shutting off at that exact moment is good symbolism.

* Doc's "they quit on me" speech. Remember that ''Cars'' was the last film for Paul Newman (Doc's voice actor) before he died. He even took a break from retirement when Disney/Pixar summoned him to have a role in it. The line "There was a lot left in me. I never got a chance to show them," [[HarsherInHindsight becomes even more heartbreaking]].

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGwpw5dwVz0 The "Our Town" sequence.]] ''Especially'' the part where Luigi pushes up the sign that says 'We're still open'. It's the "[[WesternAnimation/ToyStory2 When She Loved Me]]" of ''Cars''.

Even WebVideo/CinemaSins thought so; despite having a low opinion on the movie, Jeremy is compelled to remove a sin for the song no matter what else happens.
